Under normal circumstances when you call someone, your number is flashed on the recipient’s phone. It sounds like a sure shot great way to make crank calls and at the same time an essential feature for business.
Furthermore, there is an option of getting your number permanently blocked by connecting with the company directly. Caller ID is one of those features that we are so used to that it has become ubiquitous across both phones and carriers regardless of which country you live in. With Caller ID you can see a caller’s phone number on your phone whenever you receive a call. There are occasions however, when to protect your privacy or other reasons, you would prefer to keep your phone number hidden from the screen of the ones you are calling.
This one is a bit tricky, since there is not one-fits-all solution, but it is still not that hard to implement.
Usually, phone carriers offer unique codes that can be used to block your Caller ID on a Per-Call basis.
Note: My country (Peru) has no specific code listed, but it works in Argentina (which has a specific disabler code), so your usage may vary. We do hope that you don’t use this feature to trouble someone, because it isn’t that foolproof and your carrier can always tell who’s calling whom.
This does not work on iPhone 6, cannot find the block id setting, searching web, cannot find. For Verizon users: If you have to make a business-related call on your personal phone but don’t want just anyone to have your number, you can block Caller ID on your outgoing calls using Verizon Caller ID Blocking. Let's imagine that you receive a call, hang up (or don't answer), and then decide you want to block that person's number and avoid being bothered by them in the future.
Simply go to your list of recent callers (open the Phone app, then hit the Recents tab at the bottom). We didn't appreciate being contacted by that blurred-out number at the top, so let's block it.
The second method makes things easier if we change our minds and decide to unblock the number. Alternatively - and more helpfully if you change your mind immediately after setting up the block - you can simply tap the 'Block this caller' option again, after clicking the 'i' symbol next to a recent number (it changes to 'Unblock this caller' when you block them).
If you decide to jailbreak your iPhone (and have heard and understood our warnings), we have full iPhone jailbreaking instructions here.
Firstly, it may be worth clarifying the difference between hidden and unknown numbers.
Another option is to customise Do Not Disturb in order to silence calls from the contacts your phone doesn't recognise.


You could also subscribe to TrapCall, a service that finds out the caller ID of hidden or unknown numbers and blacklists unwanted calls. Some might give you a pay-monthly plan that gets rid of marketing calls, or change your number if you are constantly getting ID-withheld phone calls.
However, in terms of blocking a hidden number, we are afraid that the majority of phone companies cannot do much about it.
The sad truth is that you can't tell for sure without stealing their phone and checking the blocked list. We look in more depth at some of the clues that let you know if you've been blocked in a separate article: How to tell if someone has blocked your phone number on their iPhone. Sometimes, more often than not, you will need to make a call but don’t want your identity or phone number to be disclosed to the other person you are trying to call. Whenever you now make a call, your number will show as a blocked number to the person you call.
Of course, when you are the one making a phone call, the other party will also be able to see your phone number displayed on their screen. Thankfully, doing so on your iPhone is not hard at all, but it can only be enabled on a general basis and not on a per-call scenario.
So if for example you want to call the number 212-555-5555, all you need to do is find your “disabler” code and add it before the number you want to call, so it should look like this #31# 555-5555.
In that case all you have to do is go to that contact and edit it’s phone number to add the disabler code in front of it. Switch it OFF and all your outgoing calls will have your number blocked until you re-enable the option to show it.
Two simple, yet effective ways to help you have even more control over who sees your phone number and when they see it. Just press *67 before you dial your call, and “Private,” “Anonymous” or “Restricted” will appear on the receiver’s Caller ID readout. Fortunately you can block specific callers (or rather, specific phone numbers) on your iPhone, enabling you to avoid them safely without having to cut yourself off from the people you do want to talk to.
Click the 'i' symbol next to the unwanted number, scroll down and tap Block this Caller, then confirm your decision. To add a phone number to your blacklist, hit 'Add new Blacklist' and add it manually (you can do this via your recent call list).
However, we don't much like the idea of jailbreaking our iPhones, so we prefer this canny workaround. Instead of naming it after the person or company, however, call the contact 'Nuisance Caller', 'Hang Up' or some other label that you'll understand. Every time a different timewaster calls you, simply bring up the recent calls screen, tap the arrow by the number and hit 'Add to Existing Contact'.


To save you the trouble of looking at your phone to see who's calling, you can set a specific ringtone to the troublemaker contact.
The blocking method that we have described before is not going to work with private and unknown calls. Some others might be free but have in-app purchases, meaning that you'll need to pay in order to upgrade them. What you need to do is to go to Settings and scroll down the tool list until you find Do Not Disturb. TrapCall offers three different services and their prices vary depending on the level of security you need. In some cases the phone company might also be able to identify the number behind hidden calls, but then the network provider can only give the number to the police if an investigation is under way. If you don’t misuse this facility then it’s a blessing because a high level of privacy is reached with this feature on the phone. If indeed  you are as of now, allowing your number to be seen by the other person, the button will be shown in a bright blue and say “ON”. Even if they have your number in the contact list , it will still  come across as “Blocked” to them. This service comes in handy for those who work in sensitive fields such as law enforcement. We also explain how to deal with and block hidden and unknown callers, and how to find out if someone has blocked you.
Tap the red circle next to the blocked number you want to unblock, and a red button will appear. If you don't want to put up with problem callers and aren't willing to update to iOS 7, there are two techniques you can use to block nuisance callers on your iPhone. Options include blocking before your phone even acknowledges the call, sending back the engaged tone, sending the caller directly to voicemail, or automatically hanging up the call.
With no caller ID, the iPhone doesn't know who's calling, and therefore can't block the call, although it will indicate that the number has been withheld, that there is no caller ID, or that the caller is unknown. It gives you the added option of being able to stop the Caller ID of the individual you are calling. If you want to block Caller ID on all of your outgoing calls, you can set that up through My Verizon.
